Every year we spent February half-term holidays with my family in the Czech Republic. As my mum s currently living with us and needed some legal stuff after my dad passed away sorted, Isabelle was allowed a few extra days off school, so at the end we had 2 weeks away. Unfortunately daddy was not able to come.
We all were very excited about spending time with my brother and his family, and Isabelle and Olivia had amazing time with their cousins.
When we arrived at the Prague airport I was surprised there was no snow. This was the first winter in my life I went back home in February, and there was no snow, except in the mountains. I was a bit scared that Isabelle would not be bale to go skiing, but luckily there was enough artificial snow and no rain, so she did a few times. I did not risk it this year as am planning to run the Prague marathon in may, and despite me being a very good skier, you never know what could happen.
Isabelle has been learning to ski since she was just over 3 years old, and it is amazing to see how much she improves every year. As she only skies for a few days in a year, she still has lots to work on, but all the ski instructors have been saying she was very talented, and did well in her lessons. On the last day of skiing my brother came along with his son, and even he said she was doing great and you can watch them in one of the videos below.
Both my girls loved being with their uncle, aunt, cousins and my friends, and the two weeks went by so quickly. Isabelle has even asked if we could live there… not sure if daddy would be happy about this, and to be honest me neither as have been living abroad for so many years now.
I love going back home, but I also love returning back to London, and feel more and more that this is my place now.
